    Agreed! Just watch it doesn't come in contact with the frame or any paint. It can damage the paint and/or finish.aka BikeNinja - Always wear protection.

    i am no mechanic like yourself, but i'm darn sure rubbing alcohol will not damage any paint...

    I've used rubbing alcohol to clean my frame before, but I think i'll stick with the pedro's orange.Naaaah, too uncool for the #messlyfe. I just like to hang out in loading docks and pretend to talk on my radio so that people will like me. - Mfratt

    What the hell, I may as well be gaining some interest (i.e. beer) on my monies. That's like, 3% interest (weekly too!) vs. the 1% (yearly...wtf?!) I currently have in my savings account. I'd be crazy not to do it! Basic cost-benefit analysis here.

    And it's for a good cause too!

    Any of you small skinny bike guys have a suit (barking up wrong tree?) I can borrow for Thursday? I've got a 29" waist, 32" chest, I'm 5'7" and ~125-130lbsI thought that might be you! But there was no shimmy-shake so I couldn't be sure.

    yeah so everyone and their mom is telling me no. telling me to look for something Japanese or Italian instead.
    basically because if anything broke I'd have to trash the frame since it requires French shit that's hard to
    replace. as much as I adore the look of the Peugeot, I will take everyone's advice and just not.

    thank you to everyone that was willing to lend the funds! you guys are awesome.
    and also I appreciate all the advice. solid.Mattia: "I don''t usually watch porn with pickaxe, but when I do it, I make sure to be on the right website"

    I knowww. I miss that frame so much but- I was in dire need of funds so it was well spent. oh wells.

    what I'm looking for: affordable yet attractive road/track frame with plenty of _________ (what's the correct term for "curved fork; ..zero toe-overlap" please? brain fart.)
    I want SS/cruiser bars/fenders/platform pedals.
    girl needs a break from the "siq fix".
    also, I want the thing to remain as light as possible.Mattia: "I don''t usually watch porn with pickaxe, but when I do it, I make sure to be on the right website"

    Peugeots are where it's at. I haven't had any trouble finding parts for mine, and it's probably 10 years older than the one in question.You said time was infinite, so why the watch wrapped around your wrist?

    if you have the freewheel tool, you can take the springs out of a quick release skewer and use it to secure it to the wheel like this [qr][freewheel tool][freewheel/hub][other end of qr], then just grab the tool with your wrench. i had to sit on my wheel to get enough leverage but it worked.

    also getting karl to do it totally counts as diy. i like to think of karl as a third arm, the invisible kind that comes out of your forehead and smacks you when you do something stupid

    Am I wrong in thinking unit's comment was about a free wheel cog? Because if it was, can't you just use a lockring tool on those notches on the side?
    • CommentAuthormauspad
    • CommentTimeApr 14th 2010 edited
     
    if it's one of these


    i guess it's technically possible, but it would be very difficult to keep the lockring tool from slipping. a lot of multi-speed freewheels have splines instead of notches, though.

    Does anyone have a bottle or tube of Loctite that I could borrow? I just need enough to install a bottom bracket.

    could do that -- if i hadn't torn the end of my grip after trying to skid, and front brake, at the same time. no kidding; first time on the bike, and without a firm grasp on skidding, physics, or... hmmm... common sense.
